Little Rumba

Based in Presteigne on the Shropshire/Mid Wales border, Little Rumba's music is a mixture of infectious South American style rhythms mixed with Eastern European Klesmer, bluesy Tom Waits style vocals (we play only 3 covers, 2 of which are Tom Waits Tango til your sore and Sword Fish Trombone), jazzy/dancy numbers, (see you tube video, and Ian Dury style quirky lyrics that tell a story.
Pete Mustill, singer/songwriter/guitarist, met Hugh Colvin saxophonist extraordinaire 20+ years ago, excellent composer/instrumentalist John Hymas, Violin/accordion joined them in the Tango Band 15 years ago and they have played together ever since.
